NEW From Cathe: XTrain - All Out Low Impact HiiT

We all know & LOVE fitness favorite Cathe Friedrich - and her newest workouts XTrain are AWESOME! With my current knee issues I am seeking out all low impact but high intensity workouts- and who is the queen of all things high intensity/ low impact- Cathe of course! Stay tuned for a review of her Low Impact Challenge and keep reading for a review of XTrain: All Out Low Impact HiiT. 
Cathe Friedrich, 2013
Cathe works out in a nice gym w/ 4 backgrounders. You will need a step, dumbbells, and gliding discs for this cardio + strength workout. The dvd is fully chaptered and includes premixes and bonus workouts. The main workout is mostly cardio – you can use lighter weights to get a cardio only w/o or heavier for more strength workout.
After a warmup floor exercises include: squat kick-squat dip, squat & shuffle, pulse lunges, side lunge shuffle, floor touch kick, rope pull & hammer, down to semi-climber up & kick. Then on to step work: squat over step, swimmer lunges, side kick &windmill off side of step, running man. The disc section is next: climbers, simmer lunges, jacks, scissor & punch, and a cooldown.
Bonus Core: 10min. Exercises include: sit ups w/ speed bag, sit up variations, butterfly crunches, banana oblique crunches, V twist, full body crunch, gorilla walk, spiderman plank, plank knee drops, and plank holds.
Bonus Chest: 14 min. Each of 3 exercises for three sets of 10 reps, followed by a burn set. Exercises include: bench press, pec fly, incline bench press and burn set pushups.
Bonus Shoulders: 14 min. Each of 3 exercises for three sets of 10 reps, followed by a burn set. Exercises include: military press, single arm lat raise, single arm delt fly, and burn set tubing scarecrow.
This is a high intermediate routine that is easily modified up or down. AWESOME low impact but high intensity, which is exactly what I need right now. Great music and superb cueing & attitude are exactly what you expect from Cathe- and she more than delivers in this one. This is a must have for all exercise libraries. Unique, fun, low impact that leaves you sweaty and worked! I received this dvd to review.
